Hi I'm Elder Vlad Malugin

Currently serving a mission in Washington DC - North

About Me

My hobbies and interests revolve mostly around sports. I enjoy watching and even more so participating and competing in just about any sort of sporting event. In high school I played football and basketball. I have also always maintained academics as one of my highest priorities. I am now in college at the University of Utah where I am studying Finance and PreMed. I have since interrupted my undergrad studies to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints - I am serving in the Washington DC North Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

Christ is so important to me for the very same reason that He is important to all Christians, and that is the Atonement. He came to this earth - lived, suffered, and died for us - so that we can be cleansed of our unavoidable sin, no matter the seriousness or integrity of it, through sincere repentance and faith in Him. And on a personal level, I am very very far from perfect - which is why the Atonement of Christ is so important to me. I am specifically a Latter-Day Saint, or Mormon, because I believe that the Church, as Christ established it in His day, is restored to the earth today through a prophet, which continues in an uninterrupted line of prophets to a modern-day prophet today.

How I live my faith

I'm currently in Washington DC, serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for 2 years, sharing the good word with others. And the good word is Christ! I spend my days serving, teaching, but even more so learning...
